Field Trip #7 - Babe: Pig in the City
As promised, this week we're taking Andrew's advice (7:9 "Never Leave Me") and giving Babe a second chance in his second film - Babe: Pig in the City.
Although Babe is now a champion sheep herder, his troubles are not over. When an accident leaves the Farmer unable to work, his wife takes Babe on an exotic trip to earn some prize money and save the farm.
But when they're detained on a layover in Metropolis (or possibly an alien planet), Esme and Babe find refuge in a strange hotel full of animals and a circus troop. While Babe attempts to rescue the farm and his new friends, Esme just wants to rescue Babe. We discuss critics' reception of this film, the director's history, and the heartwarming rescue that will leave everyone in tears.
